The stone fire pit designs featured here are veritable works of art. Rang-
ing from traditional to contemporary in style, each design is unique and distinctive, and bears the stamp of its creator!
Striking Design above by California SmartScape
For example, the built-in design at right incorporates a seating area that
is perched high on a mountainside overlooking a pristine waterway . . .
. . . . . . . as does the striking hillside design pictured below by California SmartScape, based in San Diego, California.
Though a number of manufacturers now produce "portable" designs in both natural and
manufactured stone (right) -- some of which can be completed on site by do-it-yourselfers -- the stone fire pit designs that follow
are custom tailored for their individual sites. In ad-
dition, they reflect the creativity of the designers and stone artisans that crafted them . . . . . . . as well as the tastes and preferences of the home-
owners that commissioned them.
The next three examples are crafted with natural stone. Pictured below, left, is a design by P.O.P.S. Landscaping of Marietta, Georgia.
The contemporary design pictured at right uses stones of varying heights and thicknesses that have been
tioned vertically to create this unique composition.
Conversely, the unusual hand-sculpt-
ed fire pit with matching "chairs" in
the image that follows looks like some-
thing out of the Flintstones! Sculpted by Roger Hopkins of Rocksculptors.com
in Southern California, it is just one ex-
ample of a large and impressive body of work that includes fountains, sinks, and hot tubs, in addition to fire pits!
Unlike the above-ground designs pic- tured up to this point, the examples
at right and below, (with close-up beneath it), are flush with the ground.
Though each design incorporates a stone seating
area, the design that follows uses a variety of contrasting stone sizes, types and colors for add-
ed interest -- crushed stone for the substrate or base, flagstone for walk-
ing, and boulders for seating.
Pictured at right is a gas-fueled fire pit that can be safely operated on a wood deck.
And finally, the poolside fire pit pictured below is a great example of the numerous creative options available in outdoor fire spaces. Designed to look like an active volcano, it adds a dramatic night time focal point to an equally dramatic backdrop!
